11. Learning is forever.

One day when I was about 25 my friend was driving me to the Grove (huge outdoor mall in LA) and as we were circling the parking garage she stops to wait for a spot. I ask her how do you know they're leaving? She's all "reverse lights". I reply, "reverse what??" "You know, those white lights come on when the car is put in reverse." "Is that a new thing?" "Uhhhh... no." She stares at me blankly ....We're 30 now and she still teases me about that.

I recently blew my room mates' minds by informing them that polar bears don't eat penguins as they don't even live anywhere near each other.

14. I just thought it was.

I just realized that deer have the "caught in the headlights" reaction because in the wild, they freeze when predators are nearby. I thought they were just stupid.
